Our current hiking program from Santiago/Hotel Jardín Tecina. At the moment we offer three hikes and a tour of the island and a new "Foto safari" at regular weekly intervals.
You can book the hikes here on site or in advance. Please send us a request or buy your voucher for the hikes right now (with our online discount)!
Today we’ll discover the spectacular viewpoints of La Gomera via bus and by foot. First we ride to San Sebastián and look for subjects in the historic centre while we follow in the footprints of Christoph Kolumbus and the Spanish conquistadores. Later we’ll ride on northwards, pausing for foto stops at spectacular “miradores”. Having arrived in Las Rosas, we’ll hike for about 30 minutes through the “martian landscape” in order to reach the awesome “Skywalk” of Agulo. Here we’ll enjoy our tapas with a great view of Tenerife and the Teide. Afterwards the bus will take us up to the national park where we’ll experience the Garajonay on another small hike before we ride back to the South of the island.
To the Green Heart via the highest point of the island! After the ascent we are rewarded by the fantastic view of the “Pico del Garajonay”, from where we hike down into the national park. On this botanically guided hike we receive information about the relations between mosses, lichen and trees in this unique tropical mountain forest, the world cultural heritage of mankind. Passing the bestknown pilgrimage chapel of the island, we reach the Green Heart of La Gomera; we have short breaks at both places. The hike ends at an old sough, where the bus is waiting for us (no opportunity for a break at a restaurant).
Together we explore the island by bus and thereby discover the most important landmarks of La Gomera. After a first stop at the Roques we ride into the national park with direction to Hermigua. On our way we’ll take a short walk, afterwards we ride to the village of Agulo, the „Bombón de La Gomera“, situated on a plateau. On we go to the visitors’ centre of the island, where we have lunch together. Then we ride to the “holy” springs of Epina via Vallehermoso. On our way back we stop at the potterers of El Cercado, whom we’ll look over the shoulders. A day full of impressions and contrasts ends with our return to Santiago.
Today we start our hike at the pottery village of El Cercado. But after a short while we already reach the oldest part of the laurel forest. Surrounded by wafts of mist we pass moss- and lichen-grown trees until we reach our picknick site in the middle of the forest. We continue our hike through this mystic part of the forest until we step into the warming sunlight again. After the hike we ride to the Valle Gran Rey, where we have time for a walk-through.
